Ella & Ava turn 9 & 7 this week, and weeks ago they started asking me what kind of party they could have! It is so funny how into they get, and how good they were at helping with ideas and putting everything together! Made me smile :)
A Celeb Style Theme it was! Endless possibilities of how cute this could be. This year I was very budget friendly and ordered most everything online for silly cheap! We made lots of things instead of buying them, and believe it or not, it turned out adorable and they had the best time!
I can't link where everything came from, I'm sorry! But if you have a question on something just email me and I will get you the answer!!
You can't have a Hollywood Party without a Red Carpet ... and of course, a Step & Repeat! Which is what we turned our garage door and driveway into...
Of course you need a life size Justin Bieber on the Red Carpet also! Especially since we had a few Selena Gomez's show up ha
We printed 8x10 photos of all the "stars" that were coming (if you have a Sam's Club card you can print 8x10's for like $1.40 each, wayyy cheaper than Target or Walmart FYI)!
We had some very "Award Show" decorations ha
Made little goodie bags with thank you tags
Found the BIG Hollywood signs at the Party Store here in town, loved them!
(excuse all the cords, with the speakers and whatnot there were cords everywhere)
We moved the coffee table, scooted the sofa back, and Chris set up a little DJ area :) Speakers and all! The kids made a playlist on iTunes and then "requested" songs throughout the night too... and let me tell you what... you have never seen so many little kids doing the Cupid Shuffle in your life! It was HYSTERICAL! I loved it! Pretty sure there were a couple of us adults (ahem Heather and myself ha) who wanted to jump in and start doing it with them! :)
We had some Hollywood glasses for everyone to put on!
And since it was kind of a dress up party, we had name tags too for everyone's "celeb" names :)
I'm pretty sure we had 5 Taylor Swifts! Which lead to guitars all over the house hahahaha
I wish I could show all the pics from the kids dressed up, but since I'm not really trying to get sued by the parents lol I will show you a few of the ones I know won't care ;)
Umm they rocked it! Pretty sure they won best dressed haha! So cute!!
**Note that everyone wore their VIP passes!** They were a huge hit!
Selena and Justin... aww cute couple! lol
Mimi had to have a pic with JB too... she was Cruella Devill (sp?) from 101 Dalmatians! Such a cute costume, the kids all loved it!!
Now onto the best part... the CAKE!!
Amongst other fun things like Doodle Bears, Necklaces, Books and UGGS ha I think their favorite gift were the horse riding lessons we got them ... with the cute riding pants and boots, which they immediately had to change into and see how they looked :)
They didn't have gift certificates so we had to make our own ... but they turned out fun!
Today is Ella's 9th Birthday!
We made 30 Strawberry Shortcakes for her to take to school today for a bday treat :)
